Camille Kostek Wants Rob Gronkowski (To Play For The Bucs)

April 9th, 2022

Listen to her, Gronk.

Bucs fans have to give it up for Camille Kostek, and not just for the obvious reasons.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl and girlfriend of Bucs (?) tight end Rob Gronkowski is trying to seduce her man to suit up for the Bucs for another season. That’s the word from Lanae Brody of People magazine.

Gronk is hosting the “Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards” this weekend, which is why he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live. So Gronk also took time to chat with Brody as part of promoting his appearance. Gronk told Brody if he does return to football, it will only be with the Bucs and that Kostek is really leaning on him.

“She just loves that team,” the University of Arizona alum explains. “Loves the other wives and girlfriends on the team, too. It’s a great combo over there for sure.”

Judging by Kostek’s social media postings, she is very tight with a lot of Bucs WAGs, often showing up at their homes for parties, going out at South Tampa hotspots with them, hitting fashionable eateries, etc.

Another positive sign is that Gronk and Kostek still share a condo in Tampa. Kostek does most of her work in Los Angeles (Gronk has work there, too) as Kostek is a model and a budding actress and TV star. She easily could move to Los Angeles but she has remained in Tampa with Gronk.

To Joe, it really sounds like from what Gronk told Kimmel and People, he really doesn’t want to go through offseason workouts and probably wants to dodge training camp.

“I’m just really taking my time. The season doesn’t really start for another three, or four months. So it’s actually great not to really be signed with a team because it’s just that freedom,” the NFL legend says.

Joe cannot blame Gronk. If he is staying in shape, does he really need OTAs and voluntary and mandatory minicamps?

As for Kostek, Joe will never forget the smirk on her face behind her Jackie O sunglasses she posted on Instagram the night Tom Brady announced he was unretiring. That said it all.

    Joebucsfan, watching Jimmy Kimmel and reading People Magazine so we don’t have to. Doing the Lord’s work, fellas.

  2. BucEmUp Says:

    I think he feels the pain in his body from years of abuse.That guy doesn’t need training camp.He comes in without missing a beat.

  3. SufferingSince76 Says:

    The Super Bowl year showed training camp is not that important for the veterans. Let him rest and recoup. He will be back. Camille has ordained it.

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Gronk will play….we knew this the second Brady came back,

  5. Hodad Says:

    I knew there was a reason I fell in love with this girl the moment I saw her picture, but I just couldn’t put my finger on it.

  6. SB~LV Says:

    No rush to sign a player that only wants to play for the team that has Brady as the QB

  7. gp Says:

    but I just couldn’t put my finger on it.

    And if you did….. Gronk would break it!!!

  8. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I sure would like to be Gronk for a day or maybe just one night.

  9. WillieG Says:

    I wish another super star’s wife was of the same mindset……..

    “You’re still playing at a high level. You can AND should play until you’re 50, but only with the Bucs!”

  10. DungyDance Says:

    Lol, I’ll second that westernbuc – thanks Joe for plucking the worthy tidbits from those insufferable shows and gossip feeds. It’s gotta be like drinking a small amount of poison every time you watch. Joe is like Spok in Star Trek 2, saving the ship while making the ultimate sacrifice lol

  11. BigMacAttack Says:

    Gronk living large and totally in charge.

  12. Doc Says:

    Will the Buc’s wait around until training camp for Gronk. They need to move on because sooner then later you will have to move on anyway, why not start now and draft a young tight end.

  13. gp Says:

    Just like Tommie boy, the Gronk will have a spot waiting for him on this team.
    Yes, drafting a replacement is still wise, but when Gronk decides to return, we will make room for him!

  14. Bucs since 76 Says:

    We need three tight ends
    1. Brate
    2. Draft a tight that could start.
    3. Give Grank until trading camp to decide
    4. If Gronk retires trade or sign best free agent available

  15. BUCman Says:

    Nothing new here! Like I’ve been saying all along, Gronk 💯 percent is coming back and the team knows it. There just playing the waiting game. Gronk doesn’t want to go through OTA’s or even training camp. And the Buc’s need more time to make room under the salary cap anyways. According to the latest reported salary cap numbers they will need to make some moves to be able to squeeze Gronk and/or Suh plus their draft picks on. That could be with an additional contact restructure (which they’d prefer not to have to do) or a few cuts. I’ve always thought Suh coming back was a sure thing but if they land Wyatt in the draft ( which it’s not likely he gets to 27) then maybe they look at a cheaper veteran DL.

  17. Joe Says:

    LOL Thanks westernbuc!

We all know he will be the starting TE this season…see you in August grok! Go bucs

  21. Goatfarmer Says:

    Joes – you should have her come on one of your podcasts!

  22. Leda Says:

    Give him the rest he needs and he will be back. Many years of wounds and surgeries.

  23. Bonim Says:

    Let him skip camp. I think he would be fine.

  24. Dooley Says:

    Gronk found a shirt that spells “underachievers” with only 6 letters

  25. ModHairKen Says:

    I love that she loves the Bucs. What a great lady!!!!

  26. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Gronk will be back, no worries here. I would play it the same exact way in his shoes.

  27. HC Grover Says:

    The Stainks don’t want Gronk to play for the Bucs.

  28. firethecannons Says:

    The Super Bowl year showed training camp is not that important for the veterans.

    Absolutely agree with you. I’d probably add that it also helps with players overall health and recovery. 2020 without the training camps, OTAs etc.. did more to promote the health of players. We witnessed a magical season, but I feel like what is left out is, we had an overall very healthy season. Minimal injuries during that run, with only a few having to sit out due to covid.

    I can understand, and even agree that time is important for the young guys. The vets don’t need the reps as much, or the extra abuse the bodies go through. Whatever Gronk decides to do moving forward, I’m grateful we got to witness him playing with Brady and winning it all. I think he’ll come back, and it should be zero issue if he decides to return after camp. Go Bucs!!!

  30. cmurda Says:

    A small amount of poison. LMAO @DungyDance. Great and accurate analogy

  31. steele Says:

    I agree with BucsSince76 but that is the problem. Roster should have two TEs plus Brate.

    Being forced to draft a TE who can start means one less pick for defense. This entire draft SHOULD be defense. And there are few or no TEs in the draft who block. J Ruckert, J Ferguson in rds 3-5 are “willing” blockers but not good at it, and they are not starting caliber.

    I think it’s more dire. Few of the free agent TEs left can block well. Jared Cook? Kyle Rudolph? Which means they’d have to trade for a veteran. Who? How?

  32. steele Says:

    Look into TEs Daniel Bellinger and Justin Rigg in the draft. They can block.

  33. Rod Munch Says:

    The guy literally said he was going to ‘scare’ Brady the way Brady scared him. In any case, he enjoys his free time, and he’s a vet, and he’s been banged up most of his career, so I think he’ll sign after you get past all the offseason camps and stuff he’d have to attend if he was under contract.

    In any case I’m pretty sure Brady knows what Gronk’s plans are, and he’ll let Licht now, because if Gronk isn’t back, suddenly the Bucs have a huge issue at TE where Brate has clearly lost a step and there’s nothing behind him. If Gronk isn’t back, now you’re looking at needing to draft a TE very high in the draft, or even trading for someone.

  34. Buccos Says:

    Should have signed OJ Howard I guess. Who knew?

  35. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Rob Gronkowski said he suffered about 20 concussions during his time in the NFL. In an interview with CBS News’ Reena Ninan.

    Camille may be beautiful but not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. As a fan I really want Gronk to come back to the Bucs.

    As a human being who has seen the interviews with guys like Jim McMahon who don’t know what day it is…other guys who struggle to get out of bed because of the multiple surgeries…Gronk is looking at double digits he’s already had nine, I really hope he just bags it.

    Brady doesn’t take a FRACTION of the punishment of Gronk. TB can play to 50.
    Gronk gets beat up worse in practice than Brady does all season.

    I simply want Gronk to remember his halcyon days with Brady. I’d like him to remember what day it is. Again what’s the point of having money if your brain is so shot you can’t even count it. How many examples do we have to see….more importantly how many examples does Camille have to see?
